House. C17, some C18 refurbishment, circa late C19/early C20 alterations comprising
some rebuilding and an extension at the right end. Cob on stone rubble footings,
whitewashed and rendered to the front elevation, the front left corner rebuilt in
local volcanic rubble ; thatched roof with plain ridge gabled at ends ; end stacks,
axial stack to right of centre, projecting front lateral stack with set offs, a tall
rendered shaft and a semi-circular bread oven.
The C17 plan appears to have been 3 rooms and a through passage, the lower end to the
right ; the hall/kitchen heated by the front lateral stack with a semi-circular rear
stair turret ; the narrow inner room to the left probably originally unheated. In
the circa late C19/early C20 the building was divided into 3 cottages : a 1 room plan
addition at the right end probably dates from this phase and may be co-eval with the
rebuilding of the front left corner in stone and the provision of a second door on
the front at the left. A straight stair has been inserted in the former passage and
a single-storey brick rear lean-to with a corrugated asbestos roof probably also
dates from the early C20.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with the front door to the former passage to
the right of the lateral stack. The left hand of the front elevation is stone rubble
with brick dressings and a doorway with an internal lobby has been added giving
access to the left hand (inner) room. 2 light timber casements, either 6 or 2 panes
per light. On the rear elevation the thatch is carried down as a catslide over the
rear stair turret.
Interior C17 features, in all 3 of the left hand rooms. The hall/kitchen has an
unusual plank and muntin screen to the inner room with moulded muntins stopped off at
hall bench level and a moulded head beam, a chamfered cross beam with step hollow
stops and an open fireplace with stone rubble jambs, a chamfered timber lintel,
brick-lined bread oven and a small square window in the chimney breast. 2 C18 2-
panel doors have been inserted into the screen, similar doors to stair turret and on
first floor timber newel stair in turret. The lower end and inner room both have
chamfered stopped cross beams.
Roofspace not inspected but may be of interest.
